Orac Tune Req: Rose of Allandale (9) RE: Rose of Allandale 18 Oct 02

Thanks for the reply. There is even earlier (1848) sheet music here with no credits Click here
In fact all sheet music for this song is (I believe) in 4/4 time. (Even so-called "Irish" song books ... which it isn't of course .. but we won't go there at the moment) It seems to be only recently that its been done in 3/4 time.. even though sometimes the singer is reading the words off a page where the dots are in 4/4 time. I could do a midi but it would be pretty basic I was hoping for something more elaborate like Barry Taylor's to put on my web page. If you want to hear it in 4/4 the Corries version is original, even down to "cot" instead of "home". I understand that it was written in 1835.
